Everyone seems to be very excited about the possibility of Sigurdsson. I think he's a wonderful player.

But I just can't see where he would fit into the team. Interested in others thoughts?

If we have a starting midfield 3 of Gana/ Morgan/ Klaasen with Ross and Davies as back up.

And then we have a front 3 of Yannick / Rom (or his replacement) / Sandro with Kev and Lookman as back up.

Where would Gylfi play? The only place I can see for him is front 3 instead of Bolasie/ Sandro. But surely we're not going to spend 40mil on him and stick him out wide out of position? That's 1 of the reasons it went so badly for him at Spurs.

I think attacking wise we need 1 more striker (2 if Rom goes) , and possibly 1 more winger (depending on Lookman's development) . Would prefer to spend money on players and play them in their best position, rather than just signing excellent players for the sake of it.

Who knows what Bolasie will be like when he gets back which will be 2018. We need a strong squad now and sigurdson for me would be one of the 1st on the sheet.

Have to agree with you s_t I can't see where Sigurdsson would play either. For me he is best in the middle behind the striker which is where I am presuming Klaassen will be playing. I think RK and SW nay have decided that Sigurdsson would be too expensive and too hard to get so signed Klaassen as an option. A replacement for Rom if he is going is what we really need.

Smit - but where on the teamsheet? Are you saying he would replace Bolasie and be our winger?

Successful teams have strength in depth and that's what we need, Ross is not in Koemans plans going forward so count him out. A system which has Schneiderlein and Gana sitting in front of a back 3 of Holgate, Keane and Williams, then Baines and Coleman as wing backs with Klassen and Sigurdsson behind Sandro. You then have a strong defensive unit with creativity going forward.

Koeman likes 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 with klassen, schneids and gana plus Baines and Coleman or Davies as wing backs. Sandro and siggurdson up front.
We should have plenty of goals with Sandro and siggurdson plus klassen linking up and the added defence of gana.

That's a strong team bluegray and yes gylfi would fit perfectly in that formation. If that's the way RK wants to go then sign him up!

I'd worry about the lack of width but leave that up to RK.

Completely agree with your point on depth, but surely we wouldn't be buying sigurdsson for depth especially when we have just bought klaasen in his position.

Coleman and Baines give you width as well as Sandro working the flanks something he done very well at Malaga and something we haven't seen from our striker since he has been here.
I like the look of that system myself and its flexible in a sense that you can revert to a flat back 4 if needs be and the holding players are also good footballers and not just yard dogs like McCarthy.
